Liverpool defender Virgil van Dijk expected to be back by March

Virgil van Dijk faces an indefinite time away on the sidelines.

Virgil van Dijk underwent a knee injury due to a clash with Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford in the Merseyside Derby.

According to reports, the Dutch defender is not expected to make a return before the next season.

But former Reds player Jamie Redknapp believes that the 29-year old could make a comeback as early as March if he recovers swiftly.

“It’s a difficult one,” Redknapp told the Pitch to Post podcast.

“I’ve heard people say that they’ve got to go out and get a really big signing because Virgil is going to be injured, but if he goes through the right rehab to get fit, he’s not going to be too far away from coming back in maybe March or April time as a guess.

“Normally it’s six or seven months, he’s an incredibly fit guy and he’ll be a good healer.

“You don’t want to bring in someone for the sake of it for £40m or £50m because you know you’ve got someone coming back really quickly.

“But if you’ve lost Gomez as well, you’re certainly looking to get into the market and try and bring in someone in January or as quickly as you can, be it a loan, be it a signing – but it’s not going to be easy to get players in.”
